Now, all you need to do is customize the settings to achieve the goal you are looking for. This will depend on your specific needs. 

A specific use case: Automatic email confirmation

In Upflowy you can set up automated email confirmations to be sent every time someone fills out a flow. This walkthrough article will guide you through the step-by-step process of configuring this automation, ensuring that your users receive email confirmations effortlessly.

Step 1: Add an advanced connector to your flow

Follow the steps above to add an advanced connector to the last step of your flow, or the step where you would like to trigger the email send. From the apps select "Gmail". 

Spet 2: Configure email

For this, select the "Send email" action on the actions tab. Then provide the necessary information for the email, including the recipient's email address, subject line, and the content of the email.
To personalize the email, you can use dynamic fields from the Upflowy trigger event by clicking on the "+" icon and selecting the desired field.
Once you have filled in the email details, click on the "Save & Exit" button.

An alternative way to connect: Make

To send an email, you will need to capture an email in your flow. Ensure that you ask your customers for an email address!

Upflowy Step

Once you have these details, you'll be able to send your customers an email as soon as they complete your flow.

Upflowy stores all of the data collected in each step, so your final step will contain all of the fields that have previously been submitted. You'll be able to see this in the data tab and by clicking on "Advanced Settings" on the left-side toolbar:

To send your customers a message after completing a flow, you need to set up a Webhook on this final step.

In Make, create a new scenario, and select "Webhooks":


Select "Custom webhook":

Custom webhook

Click "Add", create a name for your webhook, and click "Save":

Now, copy the generated address to your clipboard:

Now, return to the final step of your flow. Copy-paste the URL you just copied into the "POST" url and click "Save":

Now, go to "Preview" in Upflowy and go through your entire flow - submitting all of the information. When you return to Make, you'll see that it will have "successfully determined":

Click "OK", and now add in a new Gmail module. Select "Send an email":

You can set who receives an email by entering in information to "Email Address 1". When you click on this, information sent through the webhook will appear - click on the ID of your "email" component.

As a bonus, you can also use any of the information submitted through your Upflowy flow to personalise the email! See an example where "first_name" is used for the Subject and the Content:

Now, click "OK" and set it to Live. Enjoy your personalised emails!
